I don’t know what I’m doing by Julia Smith

Have you seen the world recently

Still and serene

From your secluded spot?

Packed, pressured, panicked

Cramped, crumbling, cracking

Cracked!!!

Crying over all the nothings

You have collected

In this abundance

Of silence

Monsters making merry

With your short memory

Monuments

Made on other people’s mayhem

JUST STOP!!!

We weren’t meant for this

And it’s okay

To stand on rooftops

While others clap

And shout LOUDLY!

BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING!!!

But you’re doing your best

Even if it’s just for now

Even if it’ll be for later

Even if you’re loud and angry and ridiculous

Even if you’re like me

Who doesn’t know what she’s doing

But is doing it

All the same
